    8th Grade Visits Lincoln Museum


    On Tuesday, February 24, our 8th Grade classes visited the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois.  The students were accompanied by Mrs. Corbin, the 8th grade teachers and other staff on their excursion.  Charter busses picked up the students and staff early in the morning to spend as much time as possible at the museum.  After visiting the museum, staff and students had lunch at a local pizza restaurant in Springfield.  Student behavior was outstanding on the trip, and they were in awe of the exhibits and activities they interacted with.  Since students enjoyed the trip so much and were so well behaved, the plan is to make this an annual trip!
